Parole Board

Volume 697: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have made an assessment of the number of judicial chairs and panel members required to enable the Parole Board to carry out its work effectively. [HL547]

Every year the Parole Board provides the Secretary of State with projections for the number of new appointments it requires in order to handle its projected caseload. Its assessment is usually accepted; any adjustment is normally made in consultation with the Parole Board.
